Texas Dem who skirted votes on maskless DC flight says Texas needs 'universal mask-wearing'
Jul 21, 2021 1 min, 3 secs

One of the six Texas Democrats who tested positive for COVID-19 after skirting a vote on an election reform bill called for mask-wearing to be adopted universally statewide to prevent the spread of the disease’s breakthrough variant.

Donna Howard took to Twitter on Wednesday calling for "universal mask-wearing" to prevent the spread of the highly contagious delta variant while sharing a post on the American Academy of Pediatrics’ updated guidance for schools.

"Texas needs to change course and allow for universal mask-wearing to prevent spread of the highly contagious delta variant, [especially] as children under 12 cannot get vaccinated yet.".

"Unfortunately, the spike in infections from the delta variant became apparent immediately after our flight," Howard continued?

Howard recently tested positive for COVID-19 after she and 59 of her fellow Texas Democrats boarded a jet to Washington, D.C., to skip out on a vote on Texas’ election reform bill

Five of Howard’s fellow Texas Democrats also tested positive for the novel coronavirus following their trip where they drank Miller Lite and met with U.S

Under the Republican-backed election reform bill, a ban would be implemented on drive-thru voting, video surveillance would become a requirement, and tracking devices would be installed on all electronic devices used to count ballots to follow "input and activity."
